Freestyle Friday: Stuff, Stuff, Stuffy-Stuff for 4-5-2019

Well, this week went fast. And yeah, I wussed out and didn’t do a blog post for Monday. I kind of feels bad, but not really. I will try to come up with something for this next Monday though. Maybe share some comments on a couple spam emails? Maybe I can find something more interesting. Oh, I did do a 20TweetTales, which you can check out here. But you’re not here for that, you’re hear for the stuff!

Anyway, on to the goodies.

Web Comic Highlight:

These two comics are amusing to me. While my kids are grown, the first is still frighteningly relevant. The second, well… That one’s for anyone who just likes to have a little alone time, but never seems to get it.

Science!

This is interesting and seems to hint at the idea of genetic memory. So far, this only indicates within the same person, but this is still an early study. I’ll be curious to read more on this as the research develops to see how much of DNAm has an effect on passed-on genetics. Kinda feels like this could be a little bit of a dystopic concept.

 

Climate panel disbanded by Trump, now regrouped, releases its report

This is pretty amazing and awesome. These folks acknowledge that the issue of climate change is so crucial that they continued the work even after they were dismissed from their posts. I have to give them credit and cheer them on. The truth of science can’t be covered up forever.

 

 The Military Is Mounting Laser Weapons on Tanks

Pew Pew… I see a future of point defense laser cannons, kind of the next-level Star Wars missile defense shield, if you will.

 

NASA: Debris From India’s Anti-Satellite Test Raised Threat To Space Station

I mean… did nobody see the movie Gravity? Sure, it was Hollywood, but the threat of debris in space interacting is very real. To me, this is supper irresponsible and screams of someone trying to announce their presence in space.
